I think I'm going to hold off on the fisheye. I'm not so keen on the distortion. It makes me a little queazy. I think I'll stick with the 14mm.

I've got the 14mm myself and love it. For what I do I don't want the fisheye distortion, and the f/2.8 of the 14mm is worth more to me than the zoom ability of the 12-24. It's a great lens, you'll enjoy it. I had a 20-35 on my film body, and it was nice to get back to the ultra-wide view on digital.
